Duus Hus Cultural Center

A complex of historic buildings known as Duus Hus contain the Reykjanes Heritage Museum, the Reykjanes Art Gallery, and the Reykjanes Maritime Museum which is home to a collection of 100 miniature model boats built by retired local skipper Grimur Karlsson.

The exhibit is a favorite of locals and visitors alike as it depicts the history of the Icelandic fishing industry through the model boats beginning with classic wooden schooners used in the mid-19th century to the steam and diesel trawlers of modern times.
